Become active, dear church | ELCA Presiding Bishop Eaton

“The crucifixion was an act of violence meant to silence Jesus and his gospel of liberation and hope.” After witnessing acts of violence this week, particularly against Black and Brown people, Bishop Eaton reminds us of all the ways our church has committed to do justice – on racism, on health care, on education, on immigration — but implores us to do more. Work for change. Get in contact with your neighbors, communities, lawmakers and officials. The same liberating gospel that sets us free from sin sets us free to serve our neighbor. “Become active, dear church.”
